5 MAR 2020 // Helmholtz AI Kick-Off meeting

Helmholtz AI will enable the efficient and agile development and implementation of applied Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) assets across the whole Helmholtz Association. To realize this mission, we strongly support networking between all Helmholtz centres and the official Helmholtz AI Kick Off is the perfect opportunity to meet method and domain specialists with a shared interest in AI.

Representatives of all Helmholtz centres will learn more about Helmholtz AI initiatives, discuss use cases in applied AI/ML and expand their network.

  • When?             5 March 2020
  • Where?            Lenbach Palais, Munich

To make the Helmholtz AI Kick-off event accessible to our entire community, we will provide  live streaming of the event on our website. You are most welcome to join us - stay tuned! 

Additionally, you can join the discussion in Twitter through the hashtag #helloHelmholtzAI.


19-21 FEB 2020 // Hacking for Health: Helmholtz AI health hackathon

UPDATE 14.02.2020 >> REGISTRATION CLOSED - Thank you!


In the face of increasingly complex health issues, here at Helmholtz AI Central - Munich we want to bring together motivated people across the Helmholtz Association to solve real-world challenges through cross-disciplinary collaboration and innovative AI/ML methods. Are you up for the challenge? Here's what you need to do:

> First step: Fill in the FREE registration form before Friday, February 14 

> Second step: Take your laptop

> Last but not least: Join us in Helmholtz Zentrum M√ľnchen for a three-day event (February 19 - 21, 2020) in which you'll be part of a team with other research talents; together you'll try to find an innovative solution to a challenge proposed by a health-focused Helmholtz Center. 

Wait, there's more!

> Each team will be mentored by an expert scientist from the Helmholtz Center that proposed the challenge. 

> Relevant datasets will already be preprocessed so that you can focus on the challenge as much as possible.

> At the end of the Helmholtz AI health hackathon every team gets the chance to present its solutions and even publish the results!

Of course you'll also enjoy delicious food, have fun, get the chance to know each other better and chat with inspiring experts on applied AI and ML. Join us!
